StudentLoanGraphic

On July 1st, the interest rate on new, federally subsidized student loans is set to double from 3.4 to 6.8 percent.

 

The Bank on Students Loan Fairness Act would allow college students who are eligible for federally subsidized Stafford loans to borrow at 0.75% — the same rate that big banks get.

 

WATCH & CO-SPONSOR:

Senator Elizabeth Warren on The Bank on Students Loan Fairness Act:http://bit.ly/13t6WI5

(1:56, she shares a mind-blowing fact. At 4:26, she debunks the obvious arguments. And at 5:25, she makes the nicest, most reasonable proposal ever)
